Career Planning

The postdoc guidelines of the Helmholtz Association [PDF] foresee that every postdoc makes a decision on the direction of their own career no later than four years after completing their doctorate:

Do I want to pursue an appointment as a professor? Am I looking for a position in industry or do I want to be an entrepreneur myself? Do I see myself  in the non-profit or public sector?

The Career Center advises postdocs and doctoral students in the final phase on this decision. We also provide support in establishing the right networks and developing one’s own competencies.

For this purpose, we offer advice and training. In addition, postdocs will be able to find information on their own on our Information Hub and research various topics relevant to their carreer.
